FR Review:
We hear Peter Vracko knows "how to build a house with his bare hands." With his skilled crew of fourteen, Vracko performs spectacular gut renovations and restorations of some of the oldest properties in Los Angeles. He also stands out for his ground-up residential and commercial work, including his 25 year legacy as the designer, architect, and contractor of the world-famous hot spot The Abbey (and now its spin-off, The Chapel). Projects that promise challenges and intriguing possibilities are greater considerations than size or budget for this firm. Principal Peter Vracko is known to have his finger on the pulse of LA design, and as word spreads, this firm finds itself doing more design/build than ever before. Aesthetically, Vracko is a purist who will not fight the character of the existing structure. We hear some of his signature work is in Japanese/Asian, Spanish, and Mediterranean styles. The firm works mainly along the Sunset Strip.

Vracko grew up on a Washington State ranch and ended up building high-end homes. At the age of twenty he started his own company, and upon landing in LA quickly bumped into interior designer Craig Wright, for whom he has been building houses ever since—including Wright's own home. Limiting projects to two or three at a time, Vracko himself interacts on every level to keep the machine well oiled. Clients credit this "problem solver" as much for giving options as for his organization. "Fantastic" site managers keep expedited schedules on target. We hear that most of Vracko's crew has been with him for ten years or more, performing high-end plaster, masonry, cement, and concrete work, and bringing a special expertise to hillside/structural issues. The firm also claims a landscape designer within its ranks, making it truly full service.

We're told Vracko "lives and sleeps his projects," a fact that has clients sleeping easier, even if it's in a construction site. The firm is reputed to be especially conscientious of these live-in clients. Job sites are clean and projects completed on a timely basis.

Representative Client Comments:
"Peter didn't just want quality construction, he also wanted the aesthetic to be right." "The city inspector said it was the best job he'd ever seen." "Peter had the foresight to know what I wanted and the design ideas to implement it." "Time frame was right. Run-over was minimal." "Peter kept his appointments, was always available and if he didn't have the answer, he would come back with a fistful of catalogues to get one." "At the end of the day I didn't come home to a disaster."

Project Description & Comments:
Peter Vracko is my go-to guy for projects that require seeing the bigger picture and having a true "vision" for what a property truly can be in the right hands of professional architects, engineers, and craftsman. I have seen Peter Vracko turn what most people would have considered a "tear-down" into an ultra-modern work of art. Ask Peter to see some of the before & after photos of some of his projects and you will be amazed at the transformation he was able to achieve, while still keeping the integrity of the property intact. There is a reason why Peter Vracko has been a staple on the construction and contractor scene in Los Angeles for over 30 years, bringing both homes and many local businesses into the 21st Century, and with a keen eye for modern form and function.

Project Description & Comments:
Wonderful experience working with Peter. He was highly attentive and creative when it came to our project. Loved loved that this was a "one stop shop" and didn't have to worry about hiring for permits or build out. Not to mention the customer service is a 5 star rating! They were easy to get ahold of, replied to emails and calls on a timely manner, and the entire crew was a delight to work with. Very respectful and appreciated the fact that they kept the project clean as they worked. All those details contributed to the undeniable trust factor that they are dedicated to. They were all so friendly, reliable, and efficient! Project was completed by deadline and there were no breakdowns that were not handled powerfully. The quality and dedication is apparent in his work not a detail was missed.

Thank you Vracko Construction we love what you do!

Project Description & Comments:
We were introduced to Peter by our designer many years ago. The project we own is a historically designated multi-family property that was in need of major updating. Given the historical value of the property we needed an experienced contractor that knew how to rehabilitate an older property and also work with the city and other stakeholders. My wife and I spent a great deal of time identifying the right contractor. Luckily that person is Peter Vracko. Peter expertly has been guiding us through the design, permitting and rehab process. He's worked closely with our designer and added to the design process. Given the age of the property we could have spent a fortune on tradesmen. Peter has been able to accomplish the work and continues to do more work both on time, with a reasonable cost relative to the work and the quality of construction that borders on the old world of the highest of quality and integrity. He's really a full, turnkey contractor that goes above and beyond.
